SECRET OF HAPPINESS

Swami Sivananda

Be a hero in the inner battle. March boldly. Craving is bondage. Conquest of craving is liberation. Attend to this, the essence of all spirituality. "Sarvam paravasam duhkham ; sarvarn atmavasam sukham " 𠄺ll that is dependent is pain; all that is independent is happiness. Bliss will flow from the renunciation of all attraction towards paltry material objects. Want and anxiety are the causes of all unhappiness. Wants are being multiplied in these modern days. Reduce your wants. You will be more happy. There is no bliss in the objects. When the desired object is attained the momentarily stilled mind turns inward. The Atman or the Self reflects in Its true form as bliss in the mind thus turned. Cessation of the mind implies achievement of happiness. Contd…


To some extent we may say that the psychic impressions formed in perception of objects become a substance, as it were, so powerful as to produce this physical body of ours, obstructing all our progress in the right direction.
